Noomi Rapace talks about her PROMETHEUS character
We have posted a number or news articles about Ridley Scott's Prometheus, but up until now we have not had many details about the plot or the story. Noomi Rapace recently did an interview where she revealed some details about her character:
"I play Elizabeth Shaw, researcher and archaeologist. She's British but was raised in Africa because her father was a missionary. From him she learned to believe in God, and she has a strong inner self.
She is the most complete person I have ever played. She has an inner light. She's very stubborn and determined.
She lost her parents when she was a child, so she's been alone from a young age. But she's very intelligent. I know that when one has to survive alone from an early age, one becomes strong.
But also fragile, because the hurt child within her hasn't been able to evolve in a natural way. You get easily hurt emotionally. She's full of hope, a dreamer, a little naive.
Halfway through the movie a lot of things happen and she turns into a fighter. Another part of her comes to life"
Does her character have anything in common with Ellen Ripley?
"Yes, absolutely! There is a relationship there. I saw 'Alien' as a teenager and was blown away. Can it really be like that? She was the first female star. With 'Alien' and 'Thelma and Loise', Ridley has created a lot of hope and dreams"
Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With 'Prometheus', he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Ben Foster, and Michael Fassbender. It arrives in theaters on June 8th, 2012. I am so excited for this movie because of the cast, but at the same time I am curious to see a trailer or some official images.
